Default 2x 980 SC or 1 x 1070

What would you go for? Im deciding wether i should get another 980 sc, or sell my 980 SC and go for a 1070? Will 2 980's out perform a 1070?

2 nicely overclocked 980s will perform better than a 1080. It all depends on if the things you play have SLI profiles or not.

If that's it wouldn't your current card be fine for you? Are you playing 1080p?

Oh boy, I wouldn't. Couldn't stand the issues associated with Gsync.

I had one when they were new and although the monitor itself was nice I couldn't justify the cost after having Gsync off the whole time.

NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology synchronizes display with graphics card for the smoothest gaming visuals available.

Gsync is adaptive refresh sync technology.
